Country roads, take me home, to the place we belong….7/28/09

Well I don’t have any photos today.   But keep reading!!!!    We had a day of drizzly rain which is aggravating.   The scenery, since we crossed into Arkansas, looks just like home.   We wondered if folks driving through here and Tennessee from somewhere out west are taking photos of the trees!

Anyway, we’ve been listening to a lot of country music on our way home.   Greg loves it.   We have Sirius radio and his favorite station is “Classic Country”.   So we’ve heard a lot of his old favorites.   There are a lot of funny lyrics as well.   Here are some of the best:

First thing I hear in the morning is “git up” and the last thing I hear at night is “shut up”

If I had any sense I’d go crazy

And my favorite:

You’re the reason our kids are ugly but I love you anyway

We drove through Henryetta, Oklahoma which is the home of Troy Aikman.    We drove through Checotah, Oklahoma which is the home of Carrie Underwood, 2005 Idol winner.    A big transfer truck passed us and on the side was a huge sign which said “Keith Urban tour”.   This big rig was probably carrying stuff associated with the tour.  He was driving so fast I couldn’t even get a photo.

We are finally seeing trees at the rest stops and they are a welcome sight.  And the interstates in Oklahoma are worse than Illinois.    It’s a disgrace what shape these roads are in.  Alaska can’t be much worse!

We are spending the night in Forrest City Arkansas.   We hope to get to Loretta Lynn’s RV Ranch tomorrow night in Hurricane Mills, Tennessee.   We’ll have fun seeing her museum and her home from Butcher Holler which she had moved to Hurricane Mills.

Stay tuned!!!
